“Nice thing to do near Lubbock”
Review of Llano Estacado

Llano Estacado
Reviewed August 7, 2010

It's free, close to Lubbock, and easy to find. Nice, short tour of the winery showing how they make the wine. They buy their grapes, which we found disappointing. There is a small (3.5 acres, I think) vineyard growing experimental vines. So no great vineyard pictures. There is a tasting. Lots of gift items--some that are inexpensive and seem like good gifts--but I have not actually tasted any of it--we just bought some stuff to give away.

When you go to the strip, you typically buy the cheap llano not-so-delicious wine to party and get well, you know; however, Llano really does carry some delicious wines. We took a tour of the winery and while it's no Italy or Spain, they do explain the process well and know their product. They let you taste 5 wines and really enjoy pouring it in there... mmm. Anyway, we had a great time and it's a fun thing to go as a group and learn about wine and well, drink. Just don't get too drunk, b/c you might end up buying the whole winery like I felt I did. Cheers!

Located just outside Lubbock, the Llano Estacado Winery offers an enjoyable tour. This small and welcoming winery takes you on a short tour through their modern facility in small groups on a pretty much on-demand basis (our group consisted of just our party). The guides are very pleasant and happily answered a large number of questions from the wine novices on the tour. The winery has a small number of grape vines growing on the property (it is located between cotton fields, themselves a sight when blooming in the fall), the overwhelming majority of the grapes come from a number of farms around Texas. As expected, a wine tasting follows the tour. There is no cost for the tour or tasting. We purchased several bottles of wine and other products; the staff went way beyond our expectations in the care they demonstrated in packing the items in bubble wrap as the bottles and jars were being flown home in checked baggage. Note that the Llano Estacado winery will ship to some states but not others, depending on state law. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and the wines produced and highly recommend a visit.
